The Great Debate

I’ve just sat down to watch the first of the presidential debates taking place at Ole Miss. It was nearly Ole Miss-ed when McCain announced that rather than take part in the debate he was going to don his superhero cape and head to Washington to help with the Wall Street rescue plan. I’m not sure if the powers-that-be have come up with a suitable plan yet, at this stage I don’t think even Bob the Builder could fix it.

Well, he’s in Mississippi tonight and the debate has just started. It’s a lot less shouty than British politics, but they’re just getting warmed up so we’ll see how it goes.

Update: After an hour the debate has not warmed up any. To be honest, it’s as dull as thump. I’m going to watch the pretend politicians on the West Wing instead.



  1. Now aren’t you glad you didn’t manage to get tickets to the debate!? 😉
